    I see there is no interest here except to silence people who recommend Heisig by personal attacks like comparing them to Jehova's witnesses.

    Urthona, the way you put it, it makes it sound like by using Heisig you won't also be able to make use of radicals and patterns to learn readings and whatnot.

    The secret is 1) breaking the kanji into well known parts, and 2) using your visual imagination to make the parts and their positions memorable.
